Our first time past the 32-page mark. Our first colour cover (thanks to the seasonal spirit of Wayne Gilpin, the Mennonite Mass~d Choir and the Menno Singers). The only one of the three we'll guarantee next time, though, is the 15,000! Or more if demand continues to grow. Again a reminder--this is mid-season blip time in WholeNote's usual schedule. This issue covers two months instead of our usual one. We'll be back to normal January 25 with an issue covering February 1 to March 5. A hearty welcome this month to WholeNote contributors Dawn Lyons (Behind the Scenes, page 10) and Robert Hanson (The AudioFile, page 1 1). From all of us to all of our readers, warm wishes for the holiday season. TORONTO'S ONLY COMPREHENSIVE MONTHLY CLASSICAL & CONTEMPORARY CONCERT LISTING SOURCE
